So who broke the law? Donald Trump or the New York Times?
When the newspaper published the GOP candidate’s leaked tax returns over the weekend, many liberals cheered. Finally, they thought, this will destroy Trump’s campaign for the White House. However, the leak raises almost as many questions as it does answers.
Whereas it doesn’t appear that Trump broke any laws by not paying federal taxes during the time period in question, the New York Times may have done so by printing these documents:
“The only news here is that the more than 20-year-old alleged tax document was illegally obtained, a further demonstration that the New York Times, like establishment media in general, is an extension of the Clinton campaign, the Democratic Party and their global special interests,” the [Trump] campaign said in a statement. (…)
The newspaper wrote in its story that Marc E. Kasowitz threatened “prompt initiation of appropriate legal action” against the Times if they published the records because Trump did not give permission for the records to be disclosed.
It later turned out that the New York Times itself didn’t pay any taxes in 2014.
That arrangement is probably just as legal as Trump’s own tax avoidance, but of course, that’s not the point. This is yet another example liberal media hypocrisy.
